The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 37 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 37 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ELISA titre using peptide based assay: 1/1562500.
功能Bifunctional growth regulator that stimulates the growth of cultured chondrocytes in the presence of basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF) but inhibits the growth of cultured vascular endothelial cells. May contribute to the rapid growth of cartilage and vascular invasion prior to the replacement of cartilage by bone during endochondral bone development. Inhibits in vitro tube formation and mobilization of endothelial cells. Plays a role as antiangiogenic factor in cardiac valves to suppress neovascularization.
组织特异性Detected in cartilage and cardiac valves (at protein level). Detected in the laminae fibrosa, spongiosa and ventricularis layers of normal cardiac valves (at protein level). Expression is decreased cardiac valves of patients with valvular heart disease (at protein level). Weakly expressed in chondrosarcoma.
序列相似性Belongs to the chondromodulin-1 family. Contains 1 BRICHOS domain.
发展阶段Expressed at 9 weeks in developing cartilagenous bone rudiments.
翻译后修饰After cleavage, the post-translationally modified ChM-I is secreted as a glycoprotein.
细胞定位Endomembrane system and Secreted. Accumulated in the inter-territorial matrix of cartilage.
